Velociraptor Robots in Tokyo with John McElligot

Robotics expert John McElligot is greeted by a velociraptor and the hum of robots when he arrives at his hotel in Tokyo. 

Run by a single person and a crew of robots, the absence of human interaction propels John to seek interactions with the local bartender and others in the community.

In this fifth episode of The Guest Cast, hosts Andy and Tyann discuss the importance of human touch in guest interaction as technology rapidly increases in hospitality.
